Lovely village pub, bar area is really traditional, with a log fire. The restaurant has had a face lift - those horrible huge oak tables, and uncomfortable chairs have been replaced with smaller tables and comfy leather chairs.
Food is really tasty, and staff and customers are friendly to 'strangers'. The menu is having a revamp soon, as the landlady feels its time for a change, but she assured us that a few of the best selling dishes would stay. She also said she wanted to make a big thing of British Pie Week and St George's Day.
Also a dog and child friendly pub. The landlady has just started holding "mum and toddler" mornings, as she said there is no point in them chatting at the school gate in the freezing cold. Hot drinks, teacakes, free sqush for the kids, and CBBC on the tv!!
It's good to see a publican extending their offering to boost trade in these hard times, so many seem to take the attitude that there is nothing they can do to bring in new trade.
Will definately be using this pub more often, as they also have a dart board, and will hopefully be getting a team together soon.
